>> people who do not watch this show are missing good tv. >> making the most obvious guess is out there. >> the wife. a mother and father, don't you. a mother and father. you do. okay. i am sensing we are in jersey now. stuart: a psychiatrist. man, you sound like you are really, you know, swallowing the kool-aid. >> i enjoy traveling alone. stuart: traveling alone. >> yes. stuart: we could get into some real hot water year. i'm going to resist the temptation. ambassador by an italian running an american company which sells mexican food. that's really pretty good. i've got to say. that was for the week. want to get back to something that was set on this program earlier today. we were talking about the mac to the unemployment report. he said government spending has declined at the fastest pace, last year, 2012.
11:01am
and yet the economy still grew. that kind of proves the point, doesn't it. you cut spending and do well. stuart: is in the right. he made monica's point in the point everyone has been saying. that think he wanted to brag, but he put himself in a box. some of this is happening, why stop the trend? continue less government spending and that the economy grow. venturi the cbo report. i think we are on to something. stuart: and the worst of what he is saying, not saying explicitly , the sequester is good, good for the economy. cut spending, you put, you know, bracket around government spending in the economy will grow and jostle wrote. >> he admitted, and did not tell on this show ready to, but he did make that. stuart: thank you. appreciate. it is yours. >> it is just me. i wanted to say, i'm going to mispronounce this. dagen: yes.
11:02am
dagen: that was a great segment. a majority weekend. i'm dagen mcdowell. the market pops on the latest jobs report. vertu under thousand jobs added in this country, and we need to see this every month to keep the economy on track. will that have been? and we are back. america finally regaining $16 trillion of household wealth lost during a recession. a big crop report due out in one hour from now. farmers, listen up. we are taking your comments on twitter at fox business. you want to hear from you. and the northeast gets the last leg of that frugal to febrile snowstorm the perry the midwest. the top of the hour, everybody. stocks now and every 15 minutes. adelle is on track, nicole petallides to offer another record close, perhaps. >> reporter: pretty exciting in a believable. for the folks you are waiting for the pullback, some of the shorts getting squeezed. there was a lot of anticipation that we would have a pullback
11:03am
more recently than actually break his record highs. we have actually broken record highs and and so again and again this week. today is no different. today we traded as high as 14,400. so it's cheap. we certainly have a lot of winners. payroll numbers came in better than expected. we are seeing people leaving the labor force altogether, just fed up and not even trying to get a job anymore. the main picture is that the job numbers are going in the right direction ultimately which has helped start numbers as well. as far as some of the winners on the dow jones industrials, names like mcdonald's came out with same-store sales numbers and strength in the united states. disney and caterpillar are among the other leaders. we have seen names throughout this week a multi-year highest all-time highs. today is no different. the fear in texas to the downside, and we will keep an eye on the bank stocks. dagen: thank you so much. to the jobs report. 236,000 jobs added last month. the unemployment rate falling.
11:04am
here is why. 300,000 people were no longer unemployed last month. 130,000 of them left the work force. 170,000 folks did find jobs. with more reaction and it the former chief of staff at the u.s.-led department. good to see you. first question, can this continue? this kind of job growth and this kind of drop in the unemployment rate? >> we hope so. the bottom line is, 82. it is to keep growing. 250,000 jobs per month in order to push us closer to six and a half% unemployment. here is a real question. what is a drag on the economy going to be? taxes and most importantly implementation of health care. that is the real question. in a positive environment with positive trends and the s&p now for the third month, responding to a positive trend in a plumber reduction, hopefully that will go in the right direction, but i think word is going to come to is the confidence of employers,
11:05am
especially small businesses as we start to implement things like health care reform. dagen: speaking of that, front page of the "wall street journal" story about companies sending a record amount of cash to investors. that is a large part of where corporations are spending the extra money that they have. what will ultimately it is in demand. it will lead them to hire more people, but with all of the health care taxes and all of the other hand lens, why are we to believe that we will see additional job creation, even in acceleration of that and wants to come? >> hopefully the cutback in government spending will also have an effect. although really when you take a look at sequester, the dynamic is there potentially. on earlier today trying to make that connection. of think it was intentional, but we appreciate it. really, government spending can be curtailed, i think that is a good thing. again, even the fed in their report that came out recently,
11:06am
the fed in kansas city and also in richmond is saying that the number one thing among employers of 50 or more is concerns about health care and health care cost and what that means and the reason why they're holding back on job creation. dagen: of the 12 million people who are out of work right now, how many, paul, do you think, will never work again, will retire? would give up permanently? >> that is a great question. i think the real challenges for older workers, whether or not they see a potential for opportunities to reemployed skills. the other underlying challenge is a long-term challenge for the american economy. for younger americans, the have plummeted today is 12 and a half%. it is even higher if you are factoring in those who dropped out of the work force. i think the challenge here for the economy is to try to grow their jobs and to try to make certain that young americans are given an opportunity for those people who can give it to them. dagen: correctly, you were chief of staff at the apartment of
11:07am
labor. did you like working for the government? was it easy? >> well, i think it's kind of a mixed bag. the opporunity to serve under four presidents and three governors command i can tell you this, it is not difficult if your discipline them work for pulp -- principal people to cut government and spending. had the good fortune to have done that. but it is a difficult line of work. if you're into exile, and security in trying to defend different institutions. by and large, federal employees as it employees want to do a good job. failures in and the feed of a president committed to actually respecting the taxpayers' money and cutting government you have to resort to things like a sequester to make certain you put a brake on the engine. dagen: a better answer than i expected. thank you for that. great to see you. thank you for being here. take care. while the dow is on track to continue its record run today, let's hope it keeps it up. my next guest says washington could break that winning streak. not just politicians.
11:08am
politicians there as well. joining me now from santa monica, california, chief investment officer. let's start with politicians. why in the heck are you worry about politicians? this is unique for you, would you say? >> well, it is. it is a big sea change because i think what has been driving the markets up to this point is of fundamentals. you know, i have been pretty bullish for the last four years. i am getting concerned now because the people that the market is thank -- ba to believe that market is on a sound footing, but all the noise we get out of washington and the policy makers in europe and all-around world is causing volatility in these markets to pick up dramatically. and with the dow now approaching or not a record high, the s&p approaching its former i caught around 2% above us, valuations are not the work. every time we get something out
11:09am
of washington, whether it is a discussion about fiscal cliff or sequester or never, volatility increases. but look at this. now we have the sequester issue off the table. the market runs. i mean, what the market is basically telling you is they want to hear a laugh -- i left side of washington and focus more on the real economy. dagen: but we do need to worry about what we year out of the federal reserve, do we not? you think it's policy is dangerously stimulative to the economy. in the way? we do see that in your yield above 2 percent today. that is still exceptionally low. we -- and we are not seeing inflation worries it you might think. >> right. well, you know, i have long believed that the economy is basically hopped up on easy monetary policy. that is the over policy of the fed. we have been living with it now for four years on and off. and if you start to look at the
11:10am
day, you see where we are in terms of unemployment and inflation. even by the fed's own estimates, its current policy of keeping rates low for another to get three years, we're falling behind the curve. and notice that in the last few weeks, whenever there was any kind of discussion about quantitative easing, the markets don't take it well. and the reason the markets don't take it very well is because they need all this money to keep going to new highs. the federal reserve and ben bernanke are making it clear there are to continue to give them what they're asking for, but at some point we have to stop printing money command at some point the fed will have to resort -- reversed course. dagen: even if the central bank starts tapering off on the bond buying, even in a small way, what could be the reaction? could it be, even if it is small, catastrophic to the market? >> well, look, it was really interesting.
11:11am
when you go back just a week or so ago, when there was just some discussion in the fed minutes about tapering. i mean, they didn't say they were going to do it. they did not pledge any progress they just disgusted. the market was off like 3 percent within two days. so we isn't going to actually take, you know, stopping or tapering bond buying for things to get set back here. just the decision to do it is going to be detrimental to the market. and it just shows you how addictive we have become to easy money. dagen: globally what asset class to you like the most? again, you make me worried about owning treasurys, even corporate debt. stocks, all of that if the fed tapers off could have a dramatic impact on all of those. >> it depends on the horizon. i've been available on goal of a long term.
11:12am
worst of our to go higher. we're looking at housing data and over the last few days. when you look at the inventory of new homes which as at a record low. the inventory of existing homes. the affordability of housing at levels that have never been recorded because mortgage rates are so low to mike is the housing prices in the united states increasing between five to 10% to year for the next three or four years. here in l.a. and was just saying at the debt we probably will see 10-15% per year. dagen: uc frenzies already, returning in the likes of miami and other very hard hit markets. it's great to see. dagen: take care. >> thank you so much for being on. recovering from the recession. household wealth is back. what does that mean for optimism in this country? the crop report at the top of the hour.

dagen: it is time to make money with charles. this hour, turtles is here to weigh in on what he thinks about the jobs report. find some bad news in it. there is really not much. >> there is a little bit. i have to tell you. i said earlier that i thought this number was going to have a to handle in part because of the adb report. less talk about the good stuff. that construction number is
11:17am
phenomenal, and i don't think -- we have some obvious restraining it dovetails with the report. dovetails well with construction stocks and housing starts at things like that. i love that a lot. the bad thing, two things. almost 5 million people still unemployed. that number actually went up. i do worry about as having five, 6 million chronically unemployed , new class of people that used to be formally hard workers. howdy pay them and what kind of jobs if they get? what is the impact on the economy? that is worrisome. that just doesn't move enough. dagen: employers are in many cases very hesitant the people who have not been employed for a long amount of time. there is a stigma attached to it >> the longer you sit on the sofa less people feel like your skills have eroded and everything. and, of course images people leaving the work force, 130,000, but the interesting thing about that, ben bernanke is more less than six and a half%. and i know if we take at face
11:18am
but what if the unemployment rate continues to drop in part because people are leaving the market? does the fed taken artificial victory lap and jessica may, we did it? to this see what's wrong with eight : nine, 10 million people. we're still going tested a course. ultimately will be looking at, sort of a win-win. we have a great argument this morning. if you one of the people that think his only fed money printed welcome is not going to go away despite the fact that it came in well above the general consensus dagen: the day the fed decides to start taking. >> you're going to be surprised. work on that going back to wrap the differ recessions and fed reactions and you will be surprised at what i have been finding. i was shared with you next week. dagen: don't you dare take it test varney first. >> you got it. we want it here first. abcaeight.

nicole petallides on the floor of the new york stock keychains. >> reporter: water to take a look at the dow jones industrials. forty-seven points. 14,376, not quite an all-time high. enter day earlier today. 14,400. we are still seeing up arrows. major averages up about one-third of 1%. s&p 500 goes in that category, up about 1/4 of 1%. the dollar's stronger. we did see some good news out of japan and some of the traders talking about the fact we took that bar and kept on running. momentum that we have seen. there has not been tons of volume. the path of least resistance still remains to the upside. and they keep asking the traders about the big pullback. so many of them have been waiting. we don't seem to be talking about that. quite uncomfortable recommending shorting this market. we are seeing the bank stocks.

retailers are looking good. should note that the jobs report this morning, the big picture, jobs are going in the right direction. the unemployment rate dropped. that does appear good. however, obviously a lot of that is contingent upon a lot of americans are stepping on the labor force altogether. discouraged. but we did see jobs added to the entrance. highs again tacking on to yesterday's gains. back to you. cheryl: we are certainly doing that. quite a week. thank you very much. we will see you, of course, 15 minutes from now. let's keep on this job report for a moment. february numbers came out, and they came in a lot better than anticipated. i'm bob rate dropping. chief financial analyst, the
12:02pm
labor market is zigzagging in the right direction and he joins me now along with employment industry adviser. i want to start with you because getting -- the market has had some time to go through these numbers and like the details. in particular it is about job quality, the types of jobs that are available. seeing a big push for lower paying jobs. i in jobs that are not coming in. what does that mean? >> we are seeing is companies are still cautious about hiring, even though we have had a good jobs report. 200,000 tons being created. destruction came back strong which was a really great find. at the same time there is still a lot of opportunities for companies to add to their peril. i think we have seen ceos that have been a little cautious about doing so. starting to get some movement in these jobs are coming back. cheryl: some of these sectors. if you like a professional business services, construction,
12:03pm
38,000. obviously that is tied to the housing market. health care, 32,000. retail. what does this say about the economy? do you think these higher levels jobs coming into professional services need more money put into the economy? >> what is important is that we are just generating jobs and we aren't generating them in sectors that we need to. as you pointed out, construction is telling back. much of this recovery we have seen in absence of hiring construction. as a really good thing. much of this cast to do with the fact that we are finally getting some clarity on the fiscal situation. they decided not to have the big spat over the sequestered. i think that's good. so the economy is resilient. i think that we will continue to get job growth, but it will take us about another year before we have replenish all of the jobs that we want -- lost during the recession and the lead market. cheryl: if you back up for a moment and look at the three
12:04pm
month average, that is only the 195,000. i think it takes about 300,000 more to really get true meaningful job growth in this country. we are far from that right now. >> and if you break down the sectors and look at it, not -- manufacturing what nafta ad over one half million jobs to get back to the levels where they were at. we're seeing health care and retail and construction and a professional business services. even temporary labour which has been a lot of time and. that came back 16,000. i think it shows you that they are hiring differently, and they are hiring people on all levels in their organization, even on a contract based. cheryl: even if you look at the year-over-year numbers for wage growth average hourly wage growth and it's only about 2%. is that enough for us? >> not really. that is one of the unique features of this recovery.
12:05pm
we have seen the unemployment rate come down by more than two percentage points. average hourly earnings remains wire at the low-end of arrange that tends to run from 2% to 4 percent of the course of the business cycle. but that is just an indication of the amount of surplus labor we still have out there. if you look at the private sector, for example, we lost almost 9 million jobs during the tough times. and we still have about two and a half million jobs to generate before we will have just replenished those, and that is not really even taking into account the people who are trying to get in the labour force, you know, the younger folks. cheryl: you want to fix it. go ahead. please finish. >> i was going to say. we should be happy if we have come a long wait. has been a knock down drag out fight throughout this recovery, both for overall growth and labor market. but what i think we should recognize, how far we've come and that i think we will see a return to normalcy sometime over the next one to two year time
12:06pm
horizon for the labor market. cheryl: one to two years, yet here we are with the stock market that continues to hit new record highs. many have asked me why we are ahead, why is the stock market ahead. i'm saying, well, this may be six months. you're telling me one to two years. >> i don't think the stock market as it wrong. the stock market disconnected from the economy quite some time ago. in fact in the financial markets in general in my opinion did. that is because of what the central banks and in particular what the fed is up to. qe is all about trying to raise asset prices. i think on that fight you have to say that the fed has certainly succeeded. cheryl: last word tt you. you were talking about those high-end temporary workers, contract workers the making high salaries. those jobs are coming back. >> those jobs are definitely coming back. i think there's opportunity for people that are looking to get back to work, even getting a
12:07pm
temporary job could lead to a permanent job in the future. companies need to start hiring. they cannot sustain. they have cut back, cut costs, reduced salaries. now is the time when any to start hiring. cheryl: i know that you are an economist. i do want to give you. if you look at the overall economy, and i go back to that wage quality issue, what is being set here is that the high end contract worker, the temporary the cfo is not getting a full-time job which to me says we are not complete confidence. >> i think you're right. we are not completely confident. what is a good thing is that we continue to hire workers on a temporary basis. for many companies they are doing that really as a way of feeling out potential knew hires so when you see the temporary health increase on a monthly basis, that is usually a pretty good sign that you're going to continue to see hiring in the business sector. cheryl: all right. thanks to both of you.

12:09pm
>> i was going to say, the lack of supply that we have got that is in the system. we are hopeful about next year still. >> yes. yes. >> that is why you have that big spread. >> yes. and i think that the users of corn are going to a bd sourcing in the upcoming months. >> have to go somewhere else. >> right. well, it south america has supplies, but they don't deliver on what we do. >> of is going to say to you can rely on that. i'm also hearing this corn report. very bullish in terms of the now >> is other register identification numbers for at the monitor record high. a lot of concern because there was a shortage of ethanol. if they don't take it up to meet deadlines, it's going crazy which drives up gasoline prices. you don't think about it, but green reports move gasoline price which is one reason there was one reason.

12:11pm
like export demand. a historical problem. some people worry about washington manipulating numbers. is that about manipulation. >> it's about being conservative. a lot of these traders are going to wait for the quarterly number. and them what i call the granddaddy of them all, march intentions report, they don't want to unduly overestimate because if they do and they fall is going to do a lot more damage to the market and if they overestimate. >> a little bit like what we do with hurricanes. we overestimate the strength of our hurricane because you don't want to underestimate it or you cause a real problem. a similar sort of thing. cheryl: and you're right. we're getting more comments from our viewers and we want to get the voices. they're tweeting. the crop orders are good indicator, but the yields will be the deciding factor for feed cost this summer. he's saying or sheep, just
12:12pm
saying, look at last year. here is what the reaction is there. >> and that is a guarantee. that is the whole thing about this. right now we look very bullish or bearish for prices as we go forward. we think there will be a good harvest this year, but we have no idea. we thought last year was going to be a big harvest. there is no guarantee. >> and at once you get a call from mother nature, you will none of this. you are out in the snow. we don't know if that will be enough to break the drought. more moisture in the mid west. a lot of expectations who will have a big crop. pricing in what should be. >> that's what the market is pricing in, and that's all we can do. cheryl: thank you. want to let our viewers know, they can tweet at fox business. we will read all of them. thank you very much. dennis: the dow up 51 points,

continuing to sort a new heights. the last time dan schaefer was on our show it was downright bearish on the market. now he is back. the dallas is your last on. up nicely, as you can see. are you here to repentant recant? >> no, i am not. this is a fake rally generated by the easy money policies of the federal reserve. $2 trillion but in a the last few years to pump this market up, make everybody feel great. i say that we are still going into a deflationary depression. in the early stages. we saw that in the gdp coming in first at-1 where every analyst at the wrong. changed where every analyst on the wrong. i still believe the prices are going to start to collapse. people have changed their spending habits. the stock market is either wrong or the economic numbers are either wrong, i believe that the stock market has been wrong. happen in 1973.
12:14pm
dennis: worrying along that this market is utterly disconnected. today's jobs number, private employers, 246,000 jobs. isn't that a sign of some kind of economic reality underpinning that stock-market? >> if you believe the numbers. you see, they changed the previous month down by 38,000 jobs. that number can swing 30, 40, 50,000. rita of the actuals. >> the negative number. >> i don't believe the numbers and all. lab believe is the velocity of money is not there. nothing that the federal reserve chairman is absolutely worried that this economy is going to deflate, trying to inflate it. he said in testimony a week ago, unconcerned. we will keep rates low, possibly 2016. think about that. think about that.
12:15pm
everything that he has done is what you are paying. >> in april you and i made a bet. the snb was at 1400. finish the year . no up or 1500. misting -- missing out of a lot of tough creation. >> as a result of rising stock prices. is there not a felt. dennis: effect that is helping the. >> you would think that it would show up. but in all essen's the government is slowing down spending. the anticipation of slowing down and the fact that, again, people are not spending the way they used to, some of the earnings coming in from some of the major retailers are not looking very good. cheryl: overall are exhibited at mostar expected. >> the statistics are the 70 percent of the growth is from congress and the consumer. what does been thinking a people printing money in the stock market, make x amount of return, take the money and invest in
12:16pm
this? how much major populations are actually in the stock market. dennis: mutual funds and retirement accounts. the journal has a story today that companies are buying back $300 billion in stock this year. isn't that kind of a private stimulus plan? when i put cash back? >> i can show you another report where insiders are selling the most that they have sold in two years. all depends on who you listen to something is at a disconnect. the dislocation in the markets because of the reserve. every central bank in the world. mexico just lowered its interest rate 50 basis points. dennis: at this connection. we like it for right now. thank you for being with us. cheryl: welcome more news that came out last night. the fed bank stress test results are in. all of the big institutions. allied financial past the fed test. news on the likes of citibank and bank of america fell on a

12:26pm
unemployment better than some of their peers. >> says. it is remarkably well, even after our projected severe recession. the ratio stands at just over 8 percent, which is well above what we saw for j.p. morgan chase or bank of america. cheryl: the whale issue back in 2012. many were concerned because of their trading operations. the large-scale trading operations. the thing that has a piece of the thinking today? >> i think so. with the losses that they had last year, it is clearly a more risky trading operation then with city. and so the fed, when they do there stress tests, they have to take that into account. cheryl: right now you have a buy. targeting $51. the stock, the best performer percentage wise. then the group. you did raise your target as well. talk about that. and i really negative. >> we have a buy recommendation because you're seeing, it's not

just a stress test that we look at. it's everything. the leading investment bank in the world right now. so just because the stress test was not as great as people expected and because the return of capital is still likely not going to be $12 billion. cheryl: you are not worried, especially today about them. i don't want to be upon them to much, but this is a company hitting a year highs. especially with the market. and then kind of knocking off the front today. this one day movement. >> one day. i still think that the sharks will be 10% higher year from now cheryl: let's talk about looking forward to next week because the fed is doing this into releases. next week will be all about the buybacks and the dividends. these companies and banks still have to get to the fed. can i do a share buyback, the livermore dividends. they can say, yes, you can or no, you cannot. do you think the stage is set
12:28pm
for more dividends being paid to investors? >> banks to return capitol either through share buybacks or dividends. the emphasis is on share buybacks because the bank could easily spend a share buyback program carries a dividend cut cents a very bad signal the market. most of the capital return this year, certainly over 50, 60%, will be from share buyback. we have only seen one and as the so far, which is city, and they will request a $2 billion share buyback. but the disappointment is that there are not going to be raising their dividend, which pays only 1 cent per quarter. cheryl: before i let you go, too big to fail, are we still there >> these banks are likely to big to fail. i know it is like a dirty. i mean, certainly they get into trouble. it's likely that the u.s. government would step in to do something. cheryl: enter all of this time and although we have been through. thank you very much. thank you very much. want to let all of you know at

more and more obvious that you need to take action. dennis: scott, one problem has been trying to figure out where responsibility lies. we have this kind of bermuda triangle. who is responsibility is this, scott fisher mark. >> the main thing determining our cyber security in every way is not actions and development in cyber security and it is not the government, it is the onward rush of business development. the business has not been doing all that badly. all day long, different groups are trying to do terrible things to us. dennis: let's go back to jon iadonisi. why have we had two dozen eggs hacked? why did keep in mcdonald's get hacked? >> i do not think this will be something that you can prevent.

you are dealing with an issue that may have its manifestations in the digital safe. dennis: congress will use the cyber threat as an excuse to control and censor the internet. that is a fair question. our former government guy, why don't you start on that. >> i do not think that they will do that. they will put some more information sharing protocols in place. the debate will come in regards to standards. are we going to allow the government to regulate rfid industry and enforce standards around network security. dennis: we talk to a congressman who is leaving, leading
12:40pm
businesses and government share more information about attacks. all we want to do is share information. >> it has been ineffectual. it has typically been a one-way street. in order for it to work, i believe it has to be truly information sharing. dennis: scott, when this started, you have the guy in his boxer shorts and his mom's basement, now it turns out the people's liberation army in china is doing thousands of attacks. should we attack this problem mainly by attacking the chinese? >> it would be great if we knew for sure when it was the chinese. it would be great if we could reach the people that are attacking us. we cannot actually do either of those things.
12:41pm
retaliating is pretty much off the books. dennis: that is funny. we had an expert that said they are attacking attackers preemptively. let's get back to our twitter page. doing business online is utter fluency. nothing is safe in the cyber world. let's ask our panelists on that. brian, it occurs to me that the government break-in part of this is a rather persistent problem. who is worth protecting? >> both. they probably make equal mistakes. you cannot just stop doing business online. what you need to do is protect your data. protect what is most important. dennis: jon iadonisi, it occurs to me that if there was a
12:42pm
litigation crisis going on, if companies were getting sued for the violations that were happening, they may do a better job protecting. >> i am not so much one that always likes to turn a litigation as a solution. i would say that i think, we are asking the government to work with business which is a significant shift in the last couple years. usually you have seen a division between government and business. we need to find common ground between the titans of industry and the cyber world. microsoft, apple, google. much like we did with carnegie and etc. dennis: nice historical reference. our expert panel will stick around. up next, the sars stock plays. let's see if any of these guys are buying them. ♪
